...and ended up eating breakfast! The Rio Grande Diner has friendly, fast service, and the food is delivered in short order. Breakfast was great! Other family members had a cheese steak wrap (delicious). I'd recommend the diner for a quick bite anytime!

Very good food. brought fast and priced very reasonable. Clean and roomy tables. Polite staff. The Diner is close to all the shore points, Wildwood, Stone Harbor, Cape May as well as shopping centers.

Went with the family for breakfast and we really enjoyed it. Everyone was happy with what they ordered. The breakfast packages are huge and well prepared. You get a full breakfast for around 7 dollars. Best deal around!

We stopped for breakfast while traveling to the Lewes Ferry. Th diner was such a pleasant surprise! The restaurants was clean and our food was delicious. When we said we had a time constraint, our waitress made sure we were served and had our bill right away. We will stop there again.

This was one of the few places open the day after Christmas. We were greeted pleasantly but waited a long time for our waitress and when she showed up she was flustered and blamed it on a large take out order. She then proceeded to tell us everything they were out of including salad dressings and baked potatoes. Our meals... More

Now for the true test....coffee...hot and good! We both ordered an omelette. They were huge and perfectly cooked, including the filling of mine which was a lot of vegetables...they did it right,...

Food from scratch is often wonderful, food that has been defrosted or cooked from a number 10 can is not that great. This is why I always get the hot chili at the Rio Grande Diner - it must be from scratch !! Why ? It just tastes so good; it's always hot to the tongue and it has heat... More
